Upon entrance, I was delighted to find two of my favourite things…
Now meet Wendy Chait, the owner of the salon…
She says the salon’s having a fab opening special; if you have any massage or facial to the value of R400, you’ll get a free mini mani. There’s a Father’s Day special going on too; book any massage (also to the value of R400) and get a pedicure for free.
Pro make-up artist Renee de Wit and her pretty Kate Moss-like eyes was there too.
She did Wendy’s make-up for the night as well as that of all the girls from The Little Black Book, the PR co that threw the bash, so they all looked exceptionally glam. (As it turns out, TLBB owner Marina Nestel is one of few people who, like me, thinks ‘Jirre jissus, you look amazing… have you had cosmetic surgery?’ is one of the Best. Compliments. Ever…)
Anyhoo, another of Renee’s top rooi lippie picks is MAC’s Dubonnet, which she says is like red lippie for dummies ‘cos it suits every skintone.
Other peeps on the scene included David Donde from coffee co Truth. The brand has a new tagline, he says; ‘Flavour not bitterness. No sugar required’.
David’s gotta be one of the luckiest okes in CT. As he writes about cars, he doesn’t actually own one. Instead, he runs around in all the carretjies he gets to testdrive for his job. (Just this week alone he’s gotten to fiddle with an Alpha Romeo and new Mini Countryman).
Herschelle Gibbs was also out and about…
…and another old Jupiter mate, Isabella.
I also got to meet Susanne Reuther, the owner of Wings Group, the comoany that imports all sorts of yumminess like Bahlsen’s Choco-Liebniz and Hoola Hoops chips.
She recognised me from my blog as the ‘Toffifee addict’, which I totally can’t deny as I’m utterly besotted with the stuff. In fact, us media peeps all got a pack of Toffifee in our goodie bags and I’m embarrassed to say I ripped it open the moment I sat down in my car. This is what it looked like by the time I pulled into my parking bay at home:
Other goodie bag goodies?
Thanks Marina and co, I had a great time.
